We own and operate open pit and underground mines, mills, refineries, smelters, power stations, and research and service facilities. And we use our railways, ports and ships to deliver our products to our customers. Underpinning everything we do is an absolute commitment to safety – for our people, contractors, and the communities and environments in which we operate.
